"Feature a Creature",
Song of Joy // Holiday Snippets // Wonky Stitches Die Set // Stardust Stickles // Zig Clean Color Markers // Zig Detailer // Tumbled Glass Distress Ink // Gold Sparkle Twine // Versafine Onyx Ink
The background was done by simply inking an acrylic block using Tumbled Glass Distress Ink, spritzed with water and then stamped on to Bristol Vellum paper. I let this dry then used Versafine Onyx Ink to stamp Song of Joy by Penny Black onto the background. I colored the image using my Zig Clean Color markers and a Detailer brush also by Zig. I used the colors Olive Green, Scarlett Red, Orange and Cobalt Blue for the image. Stardust Stickles glitter was applied to the berries and the star. The sentiment tags were cut out using Avery Elle's Wonky Stitches Die Set and the little sentiment are from Penny Black's set Holiday Snippets. I used some Gold Sparkle Twine to tie the little tags to the card, pop-up glue dots keep them in place.
The scarlett red is more orange-y than I like my berries to be, I might go over them with another Zig marker to make them a deeper shade of red....

(sentiments used are a few years old, and although my main stamp is new to me, it's actually an older stamp as well, I am thinking at least 2 - 3 years old). I went with the bottom row - birds, twine and leaves.
Just as a reminder, this month the prize for my challenge is a lot of 3 Christmas themed rubber stamps.
